    My first attempt at growing pings on rock...

    I picked up a piece of tufa that looked like it had lots of available ledges with this in mind... We'll see how it goes..

    The pings so far are:

    P. ehlersiae
    P. 'Pirouette'
    P. 'Aphrodite'
    P. medusina

    I had planned on putting a big P. moranensis in the empty spot.. but it appears that the plant wasnt quite ready to divide yet... I ended up making alot of leaf pullings instead. :P Figured since it had 3 obvious growth points, all flowering, that I could go in and just seperate the plants but they were all very firmly still one plant.. *sigh* oh well.. Just have to wait.. I stuck two leaves that had roots attached in the media at the bottom.. figure they have the best chance at growing the fastest..

    So I gave the rock a good rinsing, then soaked in RO for 24 hours before using it.. Hopefully got most the crud out of the rock and got it nice and hydrated.. Took my all mineral ping media and added some peat to it at a 1:3 ratio, just to give the pings a bit more to hold onto, and packed it into the carved out spots I created.. Lots more room for future pings too.. I added a baby P. medusina as an afterthought, just to see if it'd be happier in a more natural growing environment.. Not having much luck with my batch of babies..

    Anyway, some pics..

    Its location is on a shelf in front of my plant room window, so it gets sun during the day(WHEN we have any :P)


    The inhabitants before unpotting/dividing..

    Aphrodite in need of seperation


    moranensis.. Come on, doesnt this look like its multiple plants to you?? Stupid thing..


    2 Pirouettes I grew from leaf pullings




    ehlersiae with all its most recent offspring.. This thing makes its own spontaneous offspring like crazy..


    media loaded into the nooks n crannies




    Annddd DONE! for now. :P


    Lighting situation is temporary.. Need to figure out something better and brighter..

    Out of curiosity: Is there media under the pebbles?
